Marbleized Paper

Paint in the tray: 4

Today I took a paper marbling class with Cristina Hajosy at the Eliot School. The real challenge was getting the paint mixed correctly, but once I'd passed that hurdle the process was just so much fun. Playing with color - what could be better? Placing the colors began to feel meditative, in the way that knitting and weaving can be. These are shots of the paint in trays, ready for printing:
